I took this picture today. Actually, I took about two dozen butterfly pictures today because there seemed to be a whole lot of them in my neighbor’s butterfly bush, none of which appeared to be terribly frightened by my presence. I’m not sure why I like this picture but I really do. I got a few good ones that are, of course, in color and I’m not even sure why I tried this one in black and white but I am glad I did.
Maybe it is the starkness of the black butterfly against the sort of busy background. Maybe it is because you don’t typically think of a butterfly as black.
At any rate, here’s a color one I took today as well.
